Android P, Google's next iteration of its mobile operating system, is getting quite a handful of new features, some of which are created to protect users, their data and their privacy. It supports text recognition, barcode scanning, face detection, image labeling, and landmark recognition. This option first rolled out a few months ago but now Google officially announced it at the Google I/O.

Colorize old black and white photos automatically.

As Sundar so nicely put it, Google thinks JOMO could be better for us than FOMO - that the "joy of missing out" rather than "fear". It'll engage with you, but it's hardly the most natural conversationalist.
